Just wanting to keep this forum going ... thought I'd say that I've just started to PLAN my Christmas shopping. I have only 1-1/2 weeks to get it done as I'll be having some surgery and probably won't be getting back out till after Christmas. Anyway, I've started browsing the internet and finding it quite a good source for gift ideas. I've been to the mall a couple times, and always end up buying something that is just *okay* and always overpriced. Using the internet is giving me time to really think about each item, see others that just aren't available (or that I would think of), and even find a bargan price. I do worry some about putting my credit card info out there, so I'll probably do the real ordering at work - where we have ton's of additional computer security (I don't know if that really matters as I'm fairly computer illiterate - but it sounds good). Anyone else taking this method to Christmas shopping?
